“The barista put 3 pumps of caramel in my macchiato today. I clearly said 2!” Life is tough for “first-worlders” sometimes, so what’s the best way to vent these struggles? Twitter of course! What better way to broadcast frustration about “serious problems” than to you 1,500 close friends around the web. This hilarious collection of tweets pokes fun at this all too common trend, juxtaposing stock images of despondent first world people dwelling on the sad trivialities of their lives.

These images are probably a wake-up call for some of us… too involved in the small stuff in our lives to look closer at what really matters and what should actually be a big deal. I know I’ve tweeted out some similar things before. What if Buzzfeed goes and picks up my tweet based slip in judgement to make an example of me. Time to go cull the tweets!
